Religious Fanaticism: How Spiritual Concern Could Break You Away From Your Potential Spouse

It was 4 years ago, when my partner and myself made it know to the congregation that we are courting.

Then all this speaking in tongues (skribosh) started telling us we couldn't last a year together. I disagree totally though my partner being feeble minded was shaken. She almost... No she even said we should end it but I refused and told her that was not our plan and I am not going to let that happen.

After three years they saw that we only was stronger they gave rise to a panel to probe us for dating amidst the brethren.

Behold we chose to leave instead of leaving each other. I have received a confirmation directly twice now even beyond all doubt she was made for me.

What do you think about listening to what people proclaim spiritual message about one another?

  • Yes it's good to listen to a spiritual message but always remember that prayer and good mind things turn around I'm so happy that instead of leaving each other you both live together.

    I really appreciate your courage for having a positive mind and instead of giving up you tend to come together and become one, yours will serve as an example to every individual out there that spiritual message only serve as a warning to whom it's delivered to. then it is left for the person to think wise I make a perfect decision.

    how do you make that decision you pray about it, talk to your Lord about it and behold everything shall turn around for you and you shall receive a positive message.

  • Everything is not all about spirituality bt emotions works at times, let's listen to our feeling, that's who we feel can make us happy and always put smiles on our face.

  • Well in terms of prayers in some churches, like serious speaking in tongue is a language that if you are in spirit I.e you are connected with God that speak in tongue God is listening and also you don't know what you saying is a prayer that connect you with God

  • The truth is, don't listen to people, infact, look up to God and hear from Him alone, humans are just destiny killers and destroyers, once you've gotten assurance from God, go ahead and don't listen to what humans has to say

  • If that’s what other people’s spiritual opinions are saying then pray about it and see what God tells you about it. Since both of you love each other and are willing to continue and have even also lasted so long, you should go on with your lives and be happy.

  • Not all strange languages are to be called speaking in tongue be careful of what you believe. Before one prays to the extent of speaking in tongues, the person must have connected to the heavens. 

    Secondly before marriage, try visiting different places of worships for confirmation of the union.

  • I don't listen to spiritual messages and don't act based on them .Most of them are false as I pray to God on my own as a conviction.We are all children of God and can pray to HIM directly instead of listening to false prophets and so many of them end up ruining our lives.

  • Only God knows what Christians down here in Nigerian or do i say Africa as a whole is turning Christianity into, who are they to tell you that your marriage won't last long, this is an act of jealousy. Thank God you didn't adhere to their evil talks

  • I believe there is a powerful person in that church that is eyeing the lady. If not, what's their problem with a relationship in the church as long as it's not immoral. Spirituality is not stupidity

  • There is only one God but Christendom in Nigeria is not one. They are not united. If you decide to go to other churches, it would surprise you that the message God is giving them about you guys is quite different. I suggest you stand your ground. The most important thing is Love. God is Love. If you guys have true love. God will be with you.

  • The problem i see with Christianity is that most individuals forger their position and place in Christ . Most christians don't know how to listen to God themselves make decisions based on what someone got from the realm of the spirit , i am glad this individual didnt let them dictate his life for him . See the truth is  the best advise in this case is to  seek the face of God about the relationship and be sure that God is in total agreement with the relationship . If that is done you should have no issue going forward

  • Sometimes prophecy and prophet of this days are lies everyone looking for a way to make money and destroy your marriage, if you feel everything is going well with you and your girl you don't need any advice from any of them

  • He who find a wife dound a good thing and obtain favour from the lord. The duty you owe them is their prayer support. Ask them to pray for your success not for evil things to happen. Because you obeyed God's commandment by choosing a wife.

  • Fake prophet of nowadays deliver fake spiritual message so you should try and seek counsel from a well man of God and ask them to pray to God for the success of their relationship

  • Go ahead and marry her, my brother she is for you, that is even a good confirmation, there's nothing in this life that people would not want to interfare just to make you go astray but the duration you spent in knowing each is an indication that she is for you.

  • Listen to no one when it comes to relationship issue,  although she might have seen something but I still believe that there is nothing prayer can not solve. Paray yourself and hear from the lord.

  • I like the man, first of all not all religious leaders are genuine, some are just pretenders and greedy people. You don't need any body to tell you that you aren't fit for each other, you can ask your God yourself..

    And once again, I commend your faith and fighting spirit..

  • This depends on who you are getting the message from. There are there for spiritual guidance and advice but with the many false prophets around now one needs to be very careful. God could even speak to you without a prophet its your duty to pray to God for his will in marriage and hear directly from him  cause even if you hear from a prophet you need to ask God for confirmation on that prophecy.

  • The bible said ask,seek and knock not that someone should help you to ask,seek and knock.Be your own prophet ask God for what you need by yourself,to me the leaders might have interest in getting the man or lady for their own family member.The spiritual leaders are to prayer along with you not vice versa.Imagine member to member did they want they to marry unbelievers?

  • Its not everything you hear today that you should take, most of these spiritual messages are just cooked up to cause problems between people, continue your relationship and marry the lady in question since you both love each other

    - George Belema - 2019-09-16 14:01:25 Quote

  • That's why we also have direct access to God, if a prophet or a pastor says anything to you, and you are not comfortable with, you can always go back to God in prayer, He is merciful and kind and He will answer you.

  • The truth is matters of the heart should not be subject to public opinion. Ones both parties loves each other and wants a relationship then care less about what other externals think or say. Really happy of you both.

  • It isn't your pastor, bishop, reverend, prophets, apostle, Iman, etc that will leave your life for you. They can give their advise or whatever message they have, but it's your life and your decision to determine who you want to marry or how you want to go about getting a wife for yourself. There are thousands of fake prophets and "so called men of God" that are out to deceive. So be wise!

  • It is better to act on one feeling sometimes than to let others run your life for you. It is not all that comes out of these so called again christian that is real. Some are lies to dissuade one from doing the right thing.

  • I don't know what people see in those churches honestly, they're only good in scattering marriage and relationships with their fake prophecy. People should be really careful out there.

  • People intend to use church to dictate the life of people,it was a good idea to leave the church and focus on your relationship.i feel if God wants you to know your partner isn't meant for you,he will speak to you directly.

  • It's good to ask for God's permission before doing anything, remember king saul he didn't wait for samuel before he went to war, we all know what happened at the end, but with the false prophets we have nowadays it's best to take our request to God ourselves, my grandfather said when he wanted to marry his wife, one pastor told him there's no way, that he can see death, that his wife won't live long, he and his wife prayed against it, and went ahead to marry, they are married for 76 years both of them are still alive, please if they had listened to the negativity will they be together today? God can speak to us if we allow him,  we should find time to fast on our own, go to mountains and pray personally,  then things will go easy.

  • I think you should ask from God directly He said ask and it shall be given unto you, so ask Him if she is truly yours whatever His answer is is the final say so don't jump into conclusion yet.

  • We're in a world where there are lot of false prophets so it'll be disastrous to be quick to judge or make decisions.

    It'll be alright to seek counsel from a well know clergy man.

  • Well, i think the way out of issues like this is to learn to hear God for yourself. If you learn to hear God for yourself, you would not be tossed round with every doctrine

  • I'd say its total ignorance and deficiency of the word of God in the so-called leaders of churches, trying to stop or dissuade two people from getting married owing to religious reasons. Its unscriptural, and should be done away with in churches. Thank God you stood strong and defy all odds against your choice of woman.

  • What i believed about marriage is when i get  my wife i will first arrange with the girl on how to go about hour marriage then we shall go and see her parent, after that i will proceed with our traditional marriage,i don't think i will embark on courship.

  • When it comes to marriage ,it is a spiritual institutions by God and God must be the one to confirm things to you and not other people doing the messaging alone to control your marriage. It means you too are not spirituality matured and you want to get married. Man, you and pray.

  • Seeking God's opinion is always good and always the best way out. But we are now in end time where fake prophecies and fake visions are common. All you have to do is to pray and seek the God's words and I'm sure God will direct you to the right path

  • I think it is advisable to always listen to God and not spiritkoko people. Know how God speaks to you and recognize his voice. Also, you need to know your spouse. That's is very important.

  • Yea listening to spiritual message is good though, everything depends on mindset and the spirit leading. Someone can't work to me and said he has a message for me through God. Before I believe any spiritual message, I must have communicated with my father (God) to confirm the message. Many people have been decieved with this because they're spiritually blindfolded, but by the help of God we will overcome them and their strategies in deceiving people.
